{Auto DIY} Product Review + Video: 3M Door Edge Protection Film

Last year, you might remember that we took a trip up to the 3M headquarters to attend a 3M Auto Bootcamp! While we were there we learned so many cool things about taking caring of your car--on your own. Simple little tricks and tips that anyone can do!  I think most of us who DIY stuff for our homes fail to realize that we can also DIY various car repairs. Our cars are a fraction of the cost of our homes yet we are more scared to work on them then we are our very expensive homes. This is just a … [Read more...]

Allergy Season… time to change the air filter!

It's that time of year... the most dreaded time of year for me at least. It's allergy season. I get a daily push-notification from my weather channel app alerting me of the current status of pollen in our area. Nine times out of ten we are on a high alert. When our friends at Filtrete invited us to become ambassadors for the year we knew we couldn't pass up the offer. Improving air quality in our home is our number one priority! Filtrete Filters are the most trusted brand of furnace filters. … [Read more...]

How to Stencil a Lampshade with Cutting Edge Stencils

Two months before we left for Europe (last summer) I decided I wanted to give our living room a little makeover. Little did I realize that getting ready for a 2.5 week long trip would take so much time away from DIY projects. I was contacted by Cutting Edge Stencils to do a product review and giveaway. I had all the hopes in the world to get this done before Europe.... well that never happened. And once I got back from Europe I was very much still on vacation mode. I also realized during the … [Read more...]

{Product Review} Filtrete™ High Performance Drinking Water System

  Our friends at 3M contacted us the other month and asked us if we would like to try the Filtrete™ High Performance Drinking Water System. We both were intrigued by the product and wanted to give it a try since all we currently had was a pitcher that we would fill up each time it would run low and store it in our refrigerator. Taking up precious space and of course constantly needing to be filled with water. I loved the idea of knowing that I could get filtered water at any given time right … [Read more...] Custom Cards Giveaway

Today, I'm excited to introduce to you! Mr. Woodsy and I always send out Christmas cards. In fact we send out 75-100 cards each year. We have family spread out throughout the United States, and this is one great way to communicate to them and give them an idea of what we've been up to all year. We had a very busy 2012 so making a customized card is the most ideal option for us. … [Read more...]

We are taking a trip…

For those of you who don't know us in real life... Mr. Woodsy and I not only love to create amazing DIY projects, but we also LOVE to travel. We honestly, don't just love it we live for traveling. When we were younger (as pictured below) we went on some pretty amazing trips, but then again we were mortgage free and essentially had very few bills to pay. These photos were taken on a trip we took to California in 2006. I had actually won a radio contest for an all expense paid trip to Costa … [Read more...]
